    Back emails with Microsoft technical support has failed to a solution.  Beyond to download the fix will not download, they have no extra information for me.

    Are you having to provide updates through Windows Update?  If so, I suggest that you perform a clean boot , and then run Windows update.  If you continue to have a problem with a certain update you need to download and install it manually.  Alternatively, you can consider removing the Overdrive program and new test.

  • How to get Windows 8 to open the documents in software installed for example the Overdrive Media Console software

    I have a new Dell Inspiron running Windows 8.1.  I also loaded from office of Overdrive Media Console.  When I go to my library and select an audiobook and click on 'Download' the system asks me if I want to open it or save it to a location.  In the past, under XP, the system just open Overdrive Media console and downloaded this application.  Why 8.1 don't let me do the same thing?

    Which varies a little on the browser you use.

    For Internet Explorer

    When you click on the download link of file like this link here, you will be greeted with a prompt like this.  Click on Open and the file should open in the program, so that it is associated with.

    For Chrome

    Chrome saves the file first, before giving you the choice to run it. Then click on the link (and choose a backup location if you have not defined a default value), then when it is done downloading, click on the file in the Chrome icon to launch (it will also start using the associated program)

    You can have a default download location too. If worry of browsers allow you to choose the default download manager download location.  That, itself, all is Ctrl + J in both browsers.

  • Charged by the Overdrive Media Console software DRM with Audiobook problem

    Overdrive copied my audio book on the clip, but the files are not read.  I get a message on no license.  It behaves like it did when I tried to copy files with Windows Explorer.  Files to play fine on my computer but not on the clip.


    I finally got it work - it was a bad windows driver apparently.  When I reloaded the driver it started working!

    When I had the same problem with 2 Clips, that should have been my first clue that itt was more a problem with my computer.

    Thank you very much to those of you who responded to my messages with your wisdom.

  • DRM with Overdrive Media Console error message

    I have a HP pavilion dv5230ca laptop, under XP (SP3) with Wi - Fi and purchased in August 2006.  I would like to listen to audio books through our online library.  To do this, I downloaded the Overdrive Media Console application that is required.  When I perform the Windows Media Player Security Upgrade, which is required before any audio books can be downloaded on my computer, I get an error message: "this is a problem to retrieve the identification of digital rights management machine.  Contact Microsoft technical support.  When I go on the Microsoft site, it says if it is a software problem and the computer was purchased with the software already installed, and then contact the manufacturer (HP).  Before talking to someone at HP, I checked in your forum, but there seems to be no reference to my specific problem.

    The only info I can add is that this laptop had an accident in 2007 and we took it to a professional to be restored.  Everything went well with it, except for this problem.  (I can't tell if this problem would have occurred before the accident that I tried to access the audio books so far).

    I'd appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you

    I found a solution to my problem.  I find the DRM folder on my computer (it is a hidden file, so first go to windows Explorer, tools, folder, view tab options, is selected * Show hidden files *, deselected * Hide protected operating system files).  Then to C/documents and settings / all users, and there it was.  Renamed * DRM.old* then through the procedure to update the Windows Media Player Security Update in the Overdrive Media Console software and update was successful and was able to download audio books immediately.  I hope this helps others.

  • the upgrade of my safety for OverDrive Media Console, win 8

    When I went to http;// to try and upgrade my safety for OverDrive Media Console, the update button was shaded grey and I can't access it.  I have Windows 8.  I am trying to download a digital book.  I see that e.lake8 has the same question.  Pipolo answered but when I tried it I do not have these screens, just a screen with a single button that was not available.  Thank you

    Hi Susan,.

    Have you tried to open Internet Explorer as an administrator and see if you can upgrade the DRM license?

    If you have not tried, then try to open the link by following the steps below.

    a. make sure you close all the Internet Explorer Windows and media player when you try the link and the steps provided here.

    b. open Internet Explorer rights grants administrator and copy and paste the link below.

    c. you can try to right click on Internet Explorer icon and choose 'Run as administrator' and try to open the link.

    If the previous step fails, I suggest you disable the firewall and check if that helps. If you have any third-party security firewall, you can check with the user manual to do the same thing.

    Note: Turn on the firewall once you have completed troubleshooting.

    If the problem persists, you can also go through the steps and check if it helps.

    a. When you are connected to the Internet, open OverDrive Media Console software.

    b. go in Tools > Windows Media Player Security upgrade.
    A dialog box will appear, informing you that Windows Media Player requires a security update to read content protected by DRM.

    c. click "OK" in the dialog box.
    Windows Media Player opens and the 'Windows Media Player' dialog box is displayed.

    d. click 'Upgrade' to download and install the required security component.
    Windows Media Player indicates that it is "connection to the server. Once connected, the security component is downloaded and installed. Windows Media Player indicates that the safety component has been upgraded successfully.

    e. click the 'Close' button in the 'Windows Media Player' dialog box.
    The 'Media usage rights Acquisition' dialog box is displayed.

    f. click the 'Play' button in the 'Media usage rights Acquisition' dialog box to complete the upgrade.
    Windows Media Player plays a short file, confirming that you have completed the upgrade.

    g. click the 'Cancel' button to close the 'License Acquisition' dialog box If you wish, you can also close Windows Media Player at this time.
    You have completed the Windows Media Player Security Upgrade.

    You can browse the article which contains information about the digital rights management. Here is another article on the OverDrive Media Console software.

    Hope the above information is helpful.

    This is because the ProgramData folder exists only under Windows Vista/7. To reset the DRM system, follow the instructions at (article mention Zune, but can be applied in more general cases too). Tim Baets
